Over 85% of the female adult population experience having cellulite and it’s typically around the buttocks and thighs. Fat cells are deposited under the skin and can be restricted by rigid fibrous bands in the fascia layer (connective tissue), which sit horizontally in women (which is why men usually escape the dimpling) and as they pull on the skin they create the ‘orange peel’ look.
We treat the body holistically and combating cellulite can often mean targeting the concern from all angles, combining our advanced in clinic technologies and treatments as well as medical grade skincare and supplements.
Accent Prime uses Ultrasound to contour the body and Radio Frequency technology to tighten, smooth and improve skin quality. The non-invasive course of treatments target both the superficial surface and deeper dermal layers of the skin. Alternating electromagnetic fields are generated creating friction and heat in the deeper tissue. Production of collagen is stimulated & regenerated thus strengthening and improving skin quality, elasticity & flexibility of fibrous bands, ironing out cellulite.
The amount of treatments needed depends on the severity of the cellulite and the patient’s individual response to the treatment. An initial course of 6 treatments are required. You will have a clearer idea after your consultation.
Some patients notice sublte results after their first session as the treatment tightens the deep structures of the skin. As collagen continues to develop, the skin becomes firmer and less dimpled. Full results are seen at 12 weeks.
The treatment provides great results for improving visible signs of cellulite, unfortunately there is no permanent cure. Follow up and top ups can be carried out to maintain results. Diet and lifestyle can have a big impact on the return of cellulite, maintaining hydration and staying active all contribute to lasting results. Homecare such as body brushing and using effective products also help and regular lymphatic drainage with the Lymphastim can be fantastic additions.
